This guy can catch fish!
Blues,stripers and specs!/? that is what is on tap today in Cape May County. I received reports of big blues in the surf along with short and keeper bass to 24 pounds.The blue fishing is the best that it has been in a few years. Much better than last fall. It was sure nice to see a spring time spec caught. A 29″ spotted sea trout was caught today by the fisherman pictured above with the bluefish.If you enjoy catching blues and stripers tomorrow would be good day to be fishing. Stripers are being caught on bottom rigs with clam as bait. Live herring is best, you will need time to catch your own. I do not know of any tackle shops that sell live herring. Bucktails have been taking bass also but not as many keepers as the clam. Tog are being caught around the cold spring jetty. A 20″tog was taken from the grassy sound marina fishing pier yesterday. A 10.5 pound tog was caught behind Avalon Monday.The flounder are in the back bays and should continue to stack up until opening day May 29. Some guys like to hit their flounder holes before the season and catch and release the fish. This pressure will push the flounder out of the hole they are fishing.It is best to leave the flounder be until opening day.
